Thunderchild Flowering Crab

Ginkgo is medium sized deciduous tree with beautifully fan shaped leaves which develop a clear yellow fall color. Its form is pyramidal, broadening with age and becoming picturesque.

Thunderchild Flowering Crab is a hybrid crab apple known for its attractive and fragrant dark pink blossoms and deep purple mature leaves.

Tree farmers will find this hybrid appealing as a pollinator for other apples, while home growers will enjoy the red pome's ability to attract flocks of Cedar Waxwings in the early spring.

This species is reportedly resistant to fireblight.

Saskatchewan's own Percy Wright was the famous breeder of this and many other cold hardy varieties.
